Try setting the mod to load on startup, that may work better.
I already do, and it still has not had any problems except some stuttering during zooming in but that was with massive fleets moving around on Highest video settings.
After turning it down to High it was fine again.

I haven't found any of these yet, I guess I just have to keep looking.
That is the risk you run when you play them.I'm also trying to figure out the random placement issue.DANMAN
Cool, I am away tomorrow but I'll have a look on Tuesday. I am about to start tweaking the game. One thought for you about smaller planets is that if there are multiple types of asteroids then you could just take them over and resize a planet's mesh and texture. The game would treat it as an asteroid, but you could tweak the entities to make it a full-blown planet. Just a thought.
P.S. Devs/Moderator/Webmaster - when you edit a post it does not check the page index to keep you on the proper page, but dumps you to the first page of the thread. You can edit this out after you see it. Thanks!
